    EMS is no longer the back door knuckleheads used to accidentally fiddlefork their way through into Fire; by now, lots of people have seen the writing on the wall, done their homework, and hedged their bets.

    Ive witnessed kitchen table talk at several firehouses recently in which many members mentioned friends or aquaintances who are former military, or otherwise highly motivated, squared away individuals whos sole purpose in EMS was getting to Fire.

    For people who took exam 2000 and didnt score where theyd hoped to, definitely consider EMS. Its not as bad as some people might suggest, and as most here already know, you will earn priority in hiring over the open competitive list.

    To Jerkalert, and others who have already passed the CPAT, first off, congratulations. Its definitely a big step in a long process. Understand though, that the fitness staff at the Rock didnt overtrain you for that test; instead they are readying you for the monster that looms. Soon you will take your place on the yellow lines, and warm up exercises that will prepare you for the physical activities of the day will surpass the entirety of the CPAT in short order.
    To Persist is to Conquer.

    Most definetly Skyline. The CPAT and the medical were nothing. We Understand the magnitude of the workouts and tasks that are ahead in the coming months. I'm looking forward to it. In fact most guys I work with are looming forward to it. Being screamed at to put out and maximize your potential physically and mentally is a great thing especially when the other option is going back to your EMS corner and dealing with that nightmare! I'll be smiling though all the pain. This is exactly what I wanted. I really hope I get the call for January. If not I'll see you guys in July! I'll kelp ya posted. Thanks boys.

    The DI's used to ask me why I was smiling so much. My reply was, "Look where I'm at. A lot of people want to be where I am."

    So when viewing the sub form this thread is in, if you click on the paper clip that is ontop of the most current page # for this thread (currently 277) it brings you to a list of all files that have been attached to posts in this thread. I just looked there.

    MM, just because I kind of have a higher list number for the promo. I never want to get a ahead of myself and just assume i'm in for January. You never know, when they call these guys back for the stairs and they all pass my number may not be reached. I doubt it. The rumors i'm hearing now from BHS are pretty wild but I will not be celebrating anything until I get that phone call. Either way I put in for the remainder of my AL from January on....if I don't get called i'll just cancel the AL request. If all goes well I have 11 tours left (with mutuals) in EMS

    Nope nothing on us regular guys yet. Heard that wesshould hear something in mid Jan. Also I spoke to a OTJ liutenant yeaturday while volunteering on Staten island. He said don't worry about the priorty hires. They won't be all going in at once.

    On a side note, we were both helping out a family friends tear down his cement sidings nd it was brutal work. He told me the academy is a ****load easier than that was. So I'm pretty stoked and ready to go.

    I'm sure this has been posted earlier in the thread, so sorry for reposting if any of you discussed it already. I'm looking for a weight vest. I'd like to go with either 50 or 75lbs for starting to train for the CPAT. I'm high enough on List 2000 to be called for the first class, so I've still got some time, anyway. I started shopping around for a vest but I'm wondering if anyone happens to have one they'd like to get off their hands and/or if someone can advise me on the best place to get one.

    Thanks!

    Hello, I am also playing catch up on this thread, since there are hundreds of pages, and I was wondering if anybody else has received any paperwork from the FDNY, other than your score and list number? I got a 104, and was told by a friend in the FDNY that I would probably make it into the July academy. So anybody else from a similar list number hear anything else, or receive any new paperwork yet?
    FDNY exam 2000 score: 104

    list number: 2xx

    I figured that'd probably be the case as soon as I posted the question, sorry bro. You know as well as I do that right now it's totally up in the air about how far down the list they'll go. I also plan on trying to take A/L for all of January, so barring any sick days I think I have 24 tours left (obviously not a mutual person).


    You guys just joining the thread: It's only 20 posts per page, so if you want to catch up read the last 100ish pages, or find the 6019 thread and follow skyline or 1 of the other guys that tracked their progress as they got processed for the only class to be hired off that list. Worth it to get a sense of timeline and everything else. Also, if your list # is <500 and you haven't heard anything than NOBODY has heard anything. Relax and go workout. I think January is a safe bet, since I just don't see how they could possibly start to process for the next class until they are finished with this one.

    I bought this one, and from what I can tell it's the same one that the department actually uses when doing its testing. It's cheap and reliable. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o02_s00_i00

    No Kidd was def a killer for them at the end of the game. Oh and Felton shooting like **** didn't help either.

    I just heard that a lot of guys are dropping the ball on the medical. Most have to come back for the stairs, which I personally feel is bull**** to begin with, and some have to come back for weight check in and such. I heard the Docs have been saying that they will be lucky to fill a class of 300 with us. I think the lowest they can go is 250 guys. Anything less than that there will be no class and they will wait 12 weeks and start processing you guys and it'll be a combo class. This is ALLLLLL JUST RUMOR. Take everything that I say lightly. I still think there will be a class of 300 EMS cause most that go back for the stairs pass. I know they have been using the stairs as a test for a long time but it really is retarded. Don't get me wrong I passed just fine but I know some guys that have to go back because they were a few beats over and these guys run with me and can really run. Its all mental. Its just nerves. The whole formula on how they give you a max heart rate zone and fail you based upon no personal info such a resting heart rate, recovery rate etc etc is BS. If youre nervous, it doesnt matter if you run mile in 4:30 and your resting heart rate in 36 when you wake up, your might fail. I topped out at 160 and my resting heart rate is 36 to 42 when I wake up. Thats just what I have noticed. You can disagree with me and that totally cool. Just how I feel personally.
    Anyway, when I was at CPAT it was a pretty good group of guys. I dont think anyone failed and most guys did pretty well actually. I finished in 7:20 and I was the second fastest of the day as per the proctor so some guys are crushing it. On the other hand I have been getting texts from my partner who is there today and he said everyone is fat and lazy and it looks pathetic. lol. WHO KNOWS....1000 different stories each and every day.

    We have raised a lot of money so far for the NY Beach Relief Fund and if you donated and ordered a shirt I thank you. I filmed from a helicopter almost 2 weeks ago and edited a little video to pump the cause. I flew over World Trade, Coney, Breezy, Rockaway and my hometown Long Beach.
